Default Difference between graphics controller driver and Nvidia TNT driver?

So, all you want to do is to control the brightness and contrast of the
videos? What media player app are you using? Windows Media Player? PowerDVD?
VideoLAN? Be sure to set the app to use overlay rendering.

HI, I think I might have found a reason why I am having trouble
watching videos on my Gateway. What is the difference between those
two drivers mentioned in the title?

On the Gateway site, it says there is a driver
NVidia Graphics Controller driver, version 5.3.2
that is available for download and update. What I am not understanding
is, what are the versions, for example 44.03 for the graphics card?
They sound like two independent drivers to me.

The reason I am asking is I can't control the brightness, contrast,
gamma, etc. even in the Nvidia Control Panel or with I
must be needing some other connections. OK well, get back when you
can and I will keep attempting to get my Nvidia Riva TNT card to work

TIA, appreciate it, psongman
